Destination Bayfront Facing Opposition

CORPUS CHRISTI- The Corpus Christi Taxpayers Association is launching a campaign Friday to try to get people to vote against the Destination Bayfront bond proposal and the project itself.

The Taxpayers Association is against the project because it says there are too many other things the city should be doing.

The group says Destination Bayfront won't really benefit anyone.

Jack Gordy, who is with the Taxpayers Association, says, "For me and the people with $100,000home, it's going to cost us $23 a year. Now that's not much, but that $23 could go to something else say for street maintenance or something that's good for the city."

Gordy ads, "The only thing the city's going to have on the election in November is the bayfront, and that's going to cost us about $80,000 just to have that on the ballot."

Last month, the city council agreed to put a $44,000,000 bond proposal on the November ballot to cover 90% of construction for phase one of the project.
